    Very good. Only I think column A should include, “Your grandma.” 😉

    Add overflow: scroll to the CSS for the picture. (Says the man who’s been learning more about Web dev than is really good for him…)

    I love it! Borgman is great – not just for the comic strip “Zits” but also for his editorial cartoons.

    Another one – not quite as funny, but just as relevant – is the “Building Community” poster from the Syracuse Cultural Workers, your quality purveyor of all sorts of lefty liberal pinko progressive common-sense posters, T-shirts, lapel pins, tote bags, post cards, etc. I love SCW – what a great bunch of old and new hippies who are still on message and needed now more than ever. The “Community” poster is wonderful – 40 or so simple hints (Say hello to a neighbor/ Bake bread and share it/ Host a block party…) to building a better local world. Charmingly illustrated, and there is also a Spanish version that is a great bilingual primer. The two look great framed side by side, as they are in the lobby of the non-profit I work for. Lenore, you should really try to get SCW to let you run this poster at FRK – it’s very on-topic and quite inspiring.

    Unfortunately the “so” is usually not simply “don’t overdo it” but “agitate for laws restricting (fill in the blank)”, “push your kids’ school to establish a policy banning (fill in the blank)” and “sue the crap out of anyone who knowingly exposes you to (fill in the blank)”.

    Need to remove the Liberalism from the causes . Guess I can figure out the political leaning of this cartoonist. Nice way to sneak in a dig I guess.

    So a Dead Sea Scroll found that cell phones cause a bloated feeling in 4 out of 5 dentists. Cool!

    Really, Vince? You had to work hard to find the one word that would offend you didn’t you? Clearly the cartoonist is also anti-Pam and Jay Leno as well.

    I hadn’t noticed the “Liberalism”. I hope the joke is just that people throw around “Liberal” as a dirty word. Although if that were the case, I would think “Conservatism” would also be included.

    Personally I’m tired of people using political views as derogatory terms. Neither Conservatives nor Liberals want to destroy the country.

    @Happy Nat: I am not upset that it was in included. I am more disappointed that it was the ONLY one included. Sort of like profiling I guess…

    So why be “disappointed” that a cartoonist has a political leaning, and shows it? Is that a problem, either way?
